Locate32 3.1.11.8220a (32-bit)
A fast and simple Windows search tool

Locate32 is a portable, free and fast search tool for locating file and folder names. (It can also search their contents, but that's relatively basic by comparison.) Windows can do this already, of course, but Locate32 offers a number of advantages.

The program's indexing system is faster than the standard Windows tool, for instance. It requires less resources. And you can have it index your system on demand, or perhaps schedule it to run when you're not around.

Locate32 uses a simple XP-style dialog for searching. If you want to restrict your search by file size or date, for instance, you don't have to remember the relevant filter syntax; just click the relevant tab and you'll have the program set up in seconds.

The program is faster than the standard Windows search, too. And it's not reliant on the NTFS MFT, unlike many similar tools, which means you can use it to index drives with FAT-based as well as NTFS file systems.

If you like complete control over your searching, though, Locate32's best feature is perhaps its extreme configurability. Check the Settings dialog, for instance, and you'll find the program has more than 50 configurable keyboard shortcuts for doing various things. With just a little thought it's easy to make the system work just as you'd like.

Verdict:

It's little use when searching file contents, but if you mostly search for file or folder names then Locate32 offers a quick, configurable and convenient solution

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
